Sailor, Sailor Moon! by enigmawing Sailor, Sailor Moon! by enigmawing
Ah, the infamous "Saban Moon," crushing the hopes and dreams of fans everywhere.

For those that don't know, Toon Makers produced a Sailor Moon pilot for an American audience back in 1994. It was a live-action/CG/hand-drawn animation hybrid that does little to resemble the original anime that was eventually dubbed into English by DiC. It sort of feels like a cross between Power Rangers, She-ra, and . . . Princess Gwenevere, maybe? The actual pilot never aired of course, but a presentation reel has long been available via youtube. [link]

The reason this pops into my head now is because a lot of production cels have recently turned up on eBay. I'm ashamed to admit that I sort of want one. ;p

***Drawn, colored, and crappily animated in CS5. ***

Where did this clear GIF of Igasu come from?

I honestly would have been interested to see how they pulled it off once I noticed through my horror that one of them was in a wheel-chair. They beat Extreme Ghostbusters to the punch with a handi-capable hero........and now my brain has shipped them. Internet make that a thing!

I actually like this style, but the show probably would've been worse than the DiC dub

Thank god it never aired. It wouldn't be popular. But this is a good picture.

I actually kinda like the design. I love Sailor Moon, and I actually wouldn't really mind if DIC made their own adaptation of it, just as long as it's close to the original.

I doubt they would have. If anything I wish someone would redub the original uncut episodes.

I will always have a fond spot in my heart for Sailor Barbie. :D As well as gratitude that it wasn't chosen over dubbing the original.
